More about Dr. Michael Frederick

About

Dr. Frederick is a board-certified plastic surgeon based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His Ivy League education and his extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery make him the perfect candidate to perform complex operations. He mainly focuses on the breasts, body, and face. He also performs several non-surgical procedures. He entered the field when he was inspired by his sister, who tragically lost her fight with ovarian cancer. He was shocked by the toll the disease could take on the body and mind, and he knew that he had to put his skills to use to help others in her situation.

Dr. Frederick has authored papers in several major publications, including the Annals of Plastic Surgery and the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal. After completing his education in the United States, he studied abroad at the The Pitanguy Clinic in Rio De Janeiro, where he learned some of the most advanced surgical techniques that have ever been developed. He believes that individualized care is the future of plastic surgery. Instead of using a cookie-cutter approach and handing patients a menu of procedures to choose from, he tailors his treatment plans to match each patient's unique traits. This allows him to achieve better, more consistent results.

Dr. Michael Frederick’s Journey

Dr. Frederick was raised on a 60-acre avocado farm north of Santa Barbara, California, where he came to appreciate nature and its beauty. He enjoyed sailing, waterpolo, scuba diving, and competitive swimming. He initially planned on majoring in marine biology. But when his sister contracted ovarian cancer and eventually lost her battle with the disease, he changed his plans and decided to enter into plastic and reconstructive surgery instead. He earned his undergraduate degree at University of California-Los Angeles and graduated Summa Cum Laude, beginning a long tradition of awards and recognition for his outstanding performance throughout his academic career.

Dr. Frederick enrolled in medical school at the University of California-San Francisco, which is ranked third in the nation. While there, he was awarded a Dean's Scholarship, and he was able to amass grant funding for a research project based on transplant immunology. After graduating from medical school, he was accepted into a residency and internship at Harvard University, where he aided in patient care at Massachusetts General Hospital, one of North America's finest. Even in an Ivy League institution, his exceptional intelligence and skill stood out. He was appointed Chief Resident and used much of that time to engage in research before leaving to study surgical techniques at The Pitanguy Clinic in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
